In this book the author presents a revolutionary new understanding of why and how we love, based on cutting-edge research. Every day, we hear of relationships failing and questions of whether humans are meant to be monogamous. This book presents new scientific evidence that tells us that humans are meant to mate for life. The author explains that romantic love is an attachment bond, just like that between mother and child, and shows us how to develop our "love sense", our ability to develop long-lasting relationships. Love is not the least bit illogical or random, but actually an ordered and wise recipe for survival. The book covers the three stages of a relationship and how to best weather them; the intelligence of emotions and the logic of love; the physical and psychological benefits of secure love; and much more. -- Provided by publisher.

Johnson has hit upon a core aspect of human nature. The brain circuitry for attachment most likely evolved over four million years ago as our forebears inched onto the open plains of Africa and females began to need partners to help protect them and provide for them as they carried their helpless young. Attachment lives deep in primordial pathways in the brain. And Johnson’s impressive work at commandeering this brain system to rehabilitate failing partnerships is an important contribution to those lost in the thicket of unhappy pair-bonding.
